Editorial Reviews


“Kenneth Helphand, writes about war gardens―not just victory gardens, grown in time of scarcity, but those planted on hostile fronts, including Eastern Europe's ghettos and the Japanese-American internment camps of World War II. Helphand calls the gardens an act of defiance.” ― NPR Morning Edition

“Kenneth Helphand tells Jim Fleming how a photo of a French soldier tending a rose bush in a trench during World War I resulted in his book Defiant Gardens: Making Gardens in Wartime.” ― To the Best of Our Knowledge
